Curious about ethnicity

    Well having a background in ancestry and DNA and ethnic heritage what is clear here is the Iberian Ethnic heritage of both parents. His father looks very Spanish of either Canary Island or Andalucian heritage and so does his mom, she is also showing another mix perhaps from N SPain or another place in Europe. I most certainly do not see any american indian on either part. They just do not have any of the features. They could have N African from the Canary Islands and Andalucia Spain in their bloodlines.

    And a more recent one with his father: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/6f/88/2a/6f882aed80f36a5aaa47fdffffebfc25.jpg

    I wonder how much African ancestry he has if any? He certainly favors his dad, IMO.
